Many of our visitors have asked that we create a chart according to foods and food groups; we hope this is helpful!
Solid Food Chart for Babies Grouped by Food Types
The solid food chart found below has been compiled according to food type. As with all of the charts found on this site, this chart is somewhat conservative in nature compared to guidelines from other sources. The chart shows age-ranges for each foods. We have researched and compiled these charts from various medical authorities such as private pediatricians, the AAP, the AAFP, and the WHO.
The chart below is grouped by food group first and then alphabetically by the type of food.
You may print the food chart below and ask your Pediatrician about the listings and recommendations.
As always, I highly recommend that you always consult your baby’s pediatrician before introducing new foods to your baby. It is important that you avoid any suggested foods that may pose an allergy risk for your baby. Please remember that all foods have the potential to be an allergen.

4 to 6 month old Solid Food Chart
The current recommendations indicate that breast milk or formula should be baby’s main source of nutrition until at least 6 months of age. While we believe it is best to delay solids until baby is 6 months of age, we have included this 4 - 6 month age range because many parents begin solid foods at 4 months of age. Please visit the bottom of this page to read what other sources have to say about delaying solids. You may also be interested in reading our "Early Introduction of Solids" page to see why things have changed.
Remember, always consult with your pediatrician regarding introducing solid foods to your baby and specifically discuss any foods that may pose allergy risks for your baby.
